THE SUCCESSFUL DOCK STRIKERS  JUBILANT.
London, Sept. 15.—Tho workmen
of London held a monster demonstration at Hyde Park this aftornoon; to
eclobrato the victory of the London
dock laborers in finally securing from
tho dock directors almost tlio vory con*
cossion for which they contended during tlie heroic struggle of tho past
month. Mr. John Burns was of
course the chiof speaker, and when ho
arose to address tho audience he was
grcetod with deafening cheers, and so
great was tho enthusiasm that for fully
5 minutes Mr. Burns was compelled
to stand tho acknowledgement of tho
ovation, but was unablo to uttor a syllable for tliu deafening shouts whioh
rent the air. When tho men desisted
and a measure of quiet was restored
Mr. Burns dolivett-d what was evidently a carefully prepared speech,
showing more than ordinary thought
aud study. Ho declarod that the
striko now so happily concluded was
only tho preliminary skirmish with
which wns to be opened tho great
battle yet to come, A federation of
labor would for the while be organized
throughout England, and this work
once completed, the war would be
carried into Africa. Tho thanks of
the whole civilized world, he said,
were due to the generous contributors
to the strikers' relief fund, and the
victory of tho mon was ln no small
measure duo to their timely aid.
Evory penny of the fund, ho said,
would bo accounted for by the East
End unions undor whoso direction it
had boen distributed,
Mr. Burns and his wife, whilo wnlk-
ing in the Strand to day wore reoog-
niscd and to escape tho attentions
wliich woro at onco showored  upon
them by tlio crowds which lined tho
street, they wero compelled to seek
refuge on the top of a well-filled omnibus. In this way they escaped the
immediate proximity of their crowds
of admirers, but many followed tho
'bus for aeveral squares, sending up
cheers for Burns and his plucky little
wife.
Thero is still some Bubducd growl-
ing among tho men becauso the strike
committoe consented to defer tho ditto
of advance of their wagus until November 4th. but it is heard chiefly
among thoae whose mode of living hus
been materially improved by idleness
nnd thoir share of tho relief fund.
Thu more respectable of Ihe laborers
appear to be content with the solution
readied. The dock directors clnim
that thoy have now 4,000 men at work
on the dock nnd under terms of thu
compromise those men aro to bo retained. A meeting has been arranged
for to-morrow night, at which tlm
lord mayor, Cardinal Manning aud
Messrs. Bums and 'fillet will be tho
speakers,
THE PRINOH WAH ABSENT,
London, Sept. 17th.— Doncaster
meeting wns not from a social point uf
view bo brilliant as usual, for thu
1 Prince of Wales who hns more than
onco been tho guest of Mr. Christopher Sykea at Bran ting ham Thorpe,
and of Mr. Chaplin at Blnckhoy, did
not pay hiB anticipated visit to Wei*
beck, aud the number of private specials that always go on list of what is
doing at Doncaster waB below tho average. Any lack of "go" at the races
waa amply made up for by tho stir and
animation of the sale at tho paddock
where Mr, Tattersall and hia customers had Colonel North to thank in no
smnll dftgreo for the magnificent prices
obtained for eoino of tho yearlings,
no fewer than fifteen of which ran into
four figureo. Colonel North gnve 4000
guineas for ono colt- and 2500 fur another, both by St. Simon. For another
yearling he gavo 3000, und ho paid
Mr. Chaplin 3000 guineas for a mure
named Burgundy, to say nothing of
several other lots which cost such enormous prices as 700 and 300 guineas.
Many of the high priced yearlings wero
bought by Sir Robert Jardine, who
took four, and by Capt. Machella,
These aro buyers who help the breeders' average. Sir Sutton SykeB had,
as usual, a capital salo for If, brother
of the Derby winner. Merry Hampton did not roach reserve the price.
Seven others mado over 4000 guineas,
and the average more than 600 guineas
an order, which would have caused old
Sir Tatter to rub hia eyes and ask him*
self whether this was not all a pleasant

A llOUUS NOBLEMAN.
CITY COUNCIL.
The city council met at 8 p. m. on
the 16th for the transaotion of business. Present-—Aldermen Calbick,
Curtis, Ewen, Keary, Reid, Cunningham, McPhaden, Jaques and Shiles.
His worship Mayor Townsend in
the chair.
The minutes of tho last meeting
wero read and adopted.
A good sprinkling of prominent citizens was noted in the auditorium, listening with great interest.
Aid. Jaques rose to a question of
privilege tn reply to the remarks which
fell from Aid. Cunningham at the last
meeting. He said it was too much
tho custom with Aid. Cunningham and
his colleagues to wash thoir hands
clear of anything that did not exactly
auit them. He thought the remark
about Chinamen doing better work on
Agnes street than those now engaged
on it, and tbat -Uso about the theodolites, wu a pretty tough reflection on
our oity engineer. At considerable
length and in no measured terms the
worthy alderman recited the list of his
grievances and warmly presented his
argument in refutation of the charges
which he alleged had boen made
against him in his absence at laat meeting*
Aid. Cunningham replied in a few
concise sentences, quietly defending
the position he bad taken at first;
maintaining that the work on Agnes
street was a foolish expenditure of
money, as any one could see for himself by visiting the scene of operations.
The minutes of last meeting having
been read and adopted, tbe following
communications were dealt with:
T. C. Atkinson, in regard to the
regulations of the government as to
caro and maintenance of city prisoners.

Fargo, N. D., Sept. 14,—A sensation was caused here yesterday by the
arrest of a young man who for two
weeks more or less haa been supposed to bo a younger brother of the
Duko of Durham. On his arrival he
registered ns Robert Morris, but soon
avowed his noble origin, stating that
owing to family troubles he was making a tour of tho world. His income
ho stated to be $50,000, and he spent
money lavishly, tie first appeared at
Muyvillo and exhibited letters of introduction from Cornelius Vtuider-
bilt nnd other eastern I'untlemun to
the Dairy tuples and othor wealthy
families. He speedily got into the
bust society nnd.lived high. A week

his departure for Japan, but, however,
he stopped ut Jamestown and on Friday night returned, As bo was about
to board the woetbound train yesterday, ho was arrested by Inapoctr Mitchell, of tho Loudon polico, for the
forgoiy of 1,500 pounds. His real
name is Oswald Riddol, Of tho money

ia 23 years old and it is said his father
is in an English prison for forgery.
ripe Clay al C'owlrban.
With regard to the deposit of pipe
clay discovered in this distriot and
mentioned in our issue of yesterday

deposit was found in Bear Creek Valley and uiuleilies a considerable tract.
It is in two itratu with a layer of fino
sand between. The clay next to the
surface is whitu and that undorneath
of a blueish tint. Tho sanitary engineor visited the district a short time
ago and on examining it he pronounced it of an apparently tine quality but
suggested various tosts. These have
beon tried by tlio owners, nnd the clay
has uniformly stood thom. Specimens
in various stages of rough manufacture
havo beon forwarded to San Francisco
tor further opinion. The deposit la
close to MoPhcrson's station, ami a
fine stream of water runs through the
land, whilo wood is abundant for burning purposes. A company is already
formed for working it, and oxpects to
oommonce operations shortly. Mr.

council on their duty to the ratepayers. Aid. Jaques called attention to
the faet that Dr. Molnnis' cribbing had
been the sole oause of the delay, and
that an attempt to take it down would
causa serious trouble. Aid. Keary
here asked his worship if it were in
order to address the chair sitting or
standing, and if not the former, he
would like to call Aid. Jaques to order. Aid. Jaques, "All right; I'm in
order." (Laughter.) Referred to the
board of works to report.
A. J. McColl, asking permission to

The water committeo reported that
they had taken over the right of way
and profile books, etc., and all other
rights and property from the Coquitlam Water Works Company, and recommend that the Mayor bo authorized
to make an overdraft of $20,000 for
the purpose of paying the purchase
monev to the company.
Aid. Shiles wanted to know what
the engineers working between the
Coquitlam Water Works and tho city
limits were doing, had done, and what
they were being paid.
Aid. Curtia explained fully all about
the water works, and answer ad all the
questions in detail. By oht uging tbe
route a saving of $2000 will be saved to
the city,
Aid. Keary wanted to know how
much was due to the engineers for
salary?
Aid. Curtis said $200 a month covered this item.   Report adouted.
Moved by Aid. Jaques, bc. rinded by .
Alderman Curtis, that clerk be instructed to make the following offer to
Mr. A. H. McBride, warden of the
British Columbia penitentiary; For
right of way to the peiiitcntiary
grounds, the city will give tho Government the use of the water for fire
fiurposcs for the penitentiary build-
ngs.
Aid. Keary objected on the ground
that ho had not sufficient information.
Aid. Curtis advised the supplying of
such information in .oonmiUro, nnd
not publicly. It is not wiso t> bring
up those littlo points In this wny.
Aid, Cunningham concurred in this
viow.
Aid. Curtis explained farther that it
wub not becauso thero was business
which could not be exposed, nnd the
press and the rate-payers should not
entertain that opinion. It was a more
matter of ordinary business and he did
not think it necessary to go into It at
the present time.
Aid. Calbick advised that the business bo laid over until Aid. Keary had
gained full information on the subject.
Aid. Curtis said he did not agree
with this view; they had been humbugging, long enough from month to
month.
The resolution, after considerable
further discussion, and more than ono
fiery ebullition of temper, was oarried.
- The Leases By-law was read the second time, and Aid. Ewen suggested
some-be printed so that each alderman
could make himself familiar with tho
ins and outs of the by-law., This was
ordered done.
The Railway Eleotion and Bonus
By-law waa read a second time and
the council went into committee of the
whole, Aid. Ewen in the chair, and
the by-law was read by clausi s.
The time fixed for the election is the
14th day of October.
J. D. Batchelor, Ward 1; R. Burt,
2; A. Peele, 3, and Geo. Pittendrigh,
4, wore chosen as returning officers.
The committee  rose and reported
by-law  complete.     Report  adoptod,
and on motion by-law was read a third    '
time by title and passed as read.
Ou motion, by-law was directed,
signed, sealed and published.
Aid. Curtis reported for finance
committeo that the tender of the Bank
of Montreal for $85,000.00 debentures
be accepted at 102J, and that the manager of said bank be notified to that
effect.   Adopted.
The water and sewerage committee
reported tbat tbey waited on Mr.
Moylan, inspector of penitentiaries,
and agreed for the privilege of right of
way through the penitentiary grounds,
to give all the water required for fire
purposes (or penitentiary t-mldings.
Adopted,
Moved by Aid. Curtis, soci uded by
Aid. Calbick, that the olerk bo instructed to apply to Mra. Briglouae for
transfer to city of streets of her subdivision on St, Andrew's street, and
that tho clerk prepare the deed of
same.   Oarried.
Aid. furtis, speaking on the amendment to the liquor license bylaw, laid
over from last week, said it would be
better to have Mr. McColl revise it.
Aid. Reid said he was surprised to hear
Aid. Curtis advise such a thing as asking a man in the employ of the opposito party, employed to break
the bylaw, to revise it. It would be
better to leave it alone altogether than
do that. Aid. Curtis explained that
Mr. McColl understood tho bylaw
better than any ono ehe and be was
better able to handle it, Aid. Cunningham also thought the position a
strange one. Aid. Ewon gavo a very
lucid and interesting speech on the
natural history and habits of the
lawyers: that the legal fraternity would
work just as faithfully one day for one
man, and, if necessary, jutt ns hard
against him the next day. Moved by
Aid. Curtis, seconded by Aid, Calbick,
that Mr. A. J. McColl be retained to
revise and amend tho liquor liconse
bylaw.   Carried.
The trades license amendment bylaw
was, on motion, read a first time, and
the rules of order being suspended,
was read a second time. Council then
went into committee of the whole,
Aid. Jaques in the chair ; bylaw read
by clauses, and passed its second reading.
Aid. Jaques introduced about 15
feet of Pelham atreet on paper, to the
.great merriment of the council, showing that fine thoroughfare from end to
end. Council examined the plan
thoroughly and entered into a long
and exhaustive debato in which the
matter was most effectually threshed
out. It was admitted ou all hands
that tho treatment Pelham Btreet had
recoived in the past was disgracoful
and unfair, but it was determined that
reparation should be done at tho
soonest opportunity. Aid. Keary was
In a minority of one on the amount of
the appropriation he held out on it
being too high ; 3,500 is tho amount
asked.
Aid. Reid brought up the question
of invitations and asked if they were
being issued. The clerk has the mattor
in hand and it will be attended to.
Aid, Keary asked if that narrow sidewalk leading to the hospital at Sapperton would bo continued from the
main atdowalk to the hospital nnd
neighbourhood. His worship provoked
a roar of laughter by making a mistake
on the word "hospital" and saying
"oysters" : the name of the delicious
bivalve was hailed with any number
of seconders and many humorous comments.
Aid. Curtis enquired about the collection of the road tax and what was
being done to collect it. Aid. Curtis
beleived there were several hundreds
of dollars whioh could be collected on
percentage, and some one had better
be appointed to collect, 10 per cent
commission, His worship called a
halt on the cidtus wa wa and the
motion to adjourn waa carried with
thanks, as the hour was on tho verge
of tho "high noon of night."

Tuesday Evening, Sepi. II. ISSS.
Our "broad minded" cotemporary
on Ecclesiastical Avenuo, yclepixl
Truth, after starting out by givin*
tho freedom of ity paper, practicully
unconditionally, to ul!, has come to
tho conclusion now thut the uniiio
of tbo writer is worlh more than tho
argument, and has established u
new rulo, aa follows: "Hereafter no
communication relating- to a public
quostion will be printed in Truth
unless over the name of tho writer.
* * * As heretofore, communi
cations that are merely personal
will be printed over nny name, provided, always, that the writer's is
attached to the communication."
Queer stipulations, both of them,
nnd we shall be very much astonished if our varinblu cotem, does not
tako another veer on the question
beforo long, or elso conveniently forget its declaration of Sunday. There
nrii public questions where the enforcement of suoh a condition with
respect to newspaper correspondence,
as that the writer should sign his
own name to his communication,
mi,i;hb be advisable. The same re
marks will apply equally to communications "that are merely personal,"
But there is no sense in making
wholesale, sweeping conditions that
will have to be amended in
pmctice. The Columbian is open
for correspondence on all legitimate and reasonable questions of
public interest, the only general conditions being that communications
should bo as terse as possible, written on only ono side of the paper,
and couched in terms fit for tho
public, ear. If any special conditions should bo neoesssary on a certain subject or with respect to a certain communication, we should not
hesitate to make them known. We
invito communications at the present
time, from our subscribers especially,
on the Southern Railway question,
subject only to the geneml conditions
abovo.
During such an occasion us the
forthcoming exhibition and celebration, when there will be thousands
of visitors to our city, tlio same
temptation, which unhappily bus
been yielded to to a certain extent
in other cities of the province and
elsewhere, will be presented to our
citizens—and particularly to our
business men and hotel keepers—
viz., the temptation to double or
treble ordinary prices for everything,
to tako advantage of the necessities
of our guests, to metaphorically and
practically tell our visitors to "throw
up their hands"—it's their money
we're after, and wo care nothing for
their compnny or their good looks.
Although, in such circumstances,
the hapless visitor can do nothing
but. submit with the best possible
grace, his feelings toward the individual who has thus imposed upon
hia necessities — and theso sentiments are generally extentlod toward tlio city where ho has met
with such treatment—are not very
different from the lively aversion
that i man naturally entertains toward tho gentleman who has sandbagged him und relieved him of his
purse. The royal city has novor
earnci an unsavory reputation in
this respect, and wo feel suro that
no-muse will bo given during exhibition week by any of out* patriotic
qitiratis for such complaints by our
guests ua havo been heard nfter
similar gatherings elsewhere. On
the contrary, it is to be hoped that
everyone will vie with his neighbor to
accord our visitors to the exhibition
and celebration, in October, the
very best treatment and entertain*
ment within our power, and at the
most reasonable possible rates. Such
a course is tlto right one, nnd, moreover- will best pay individual busi-
nes- men, as well as tho city at large,
in tlie long run. A hint will hardly
be necessary to our local athletic
and Hporting organizations to exercise their customary courtesy and
magnanimity in contesting for prizes
with their visiting brethren, Unseemly disputes and after recriminations of unfair treatment by the
home sportsmen have sometimes
marred celebration occasions in the
province antl elsnwhoro. "Wo hnvo
overy confidence that no cause whatever will bo givon for sucii coin-
plaints against our sportsmen, but
that the entire programme will bo
carried out with the utmost fairness
and amicability, and that to the
best men will be cheerfully accorded
the prizes, For the further credit
and good name of tho city, the civio
authorities should see to it that nn
ample special police force is maintained during exhibition week, so
that the best of order may be preserved and all the statutes in the
publio interest rigidly and impartially enforced.
Imperial federation is a question
that We shnll hear something about
tomorrow night, from nn able lee
turer, Rev. D. V. Lucas, who has
made a special study of the subject
and addressed audiences in many
and widely separated parts of the
empire, with a view to disseminating information and creating sentiment on a question of so much importance. Imperial federation is a
question wliich is agitating, not
Canadians only, but thoughtful and
leading minds in most oftho British
colonies and in lho mother country
as well. As Canadians, viewing
tho matter from the narrower standpoint of what our ultimate destiny
is to be, apart from a consideration
of the grander vision of building up
a united and globo-circling British
ompiro, Imperial federation has an
interest for us as an alternative proposition for annexation or independence, and both of theso schemes.
which we believe to be far less cjesir-
ablo than the federation of tho em
piru—if wo must have a change—
already have their advocates in this
Oanada of ours, and evon in this
province. In British Columbia,
until com para lively lately, such has
been the degree of our isolation, that
wc have not taken a very deep interest even in Dominion matters,
but our circumstances liavo greatly
changed nnd aro greatly changing,
and the swiftly marshalling ovonts
of this age of progress and wonders
in the material world will soon make
this Pacific province of tho Dominion, and almost unknown land of a
decade ago, a very keystone of tho
empire, and Canada itself tho
"Greater Britain." It behooves us,
tbon, under all tbo circumsfcancos,
and in view of the fact that our
brethren in tho eastern provinces
and throughout tho empire are forming themselves into Imperial federation leagues and studying and prosecuting this question, to at least similarly interest ourselves in the matter
and thoroughly canvass and ventilate the arguments for nnd against
the greatest national question of the
day affecting Great Britain and her
colonies. Looked at as a schemo
for consolidating the British possessions throughout the world into a
vast empire—tho greatest the world
has ever seen, or ever will see—
cemented by tho bonds of relationship, mutual traditions and mutual
interests, Imperial federation appeals
strongly to the sentiment of patriotism, wliich is by no means the dead
force—and a good thing for the
world that it isn't—that some would
fain tako for granted. Imperial
federation even as a theory, it must
be admitted, is yot iu its formative
stages, and the details of its practical
application are, of courtie, nob yet
formulated. The principal idea or
the scheme, however, is: Government of the several parts of the empire in the interests of the whole ;
but only so far us Imperial and international interests arc immediately
concerned. To this end it is do-
signed that the various colonies
should have a voice in certain Imperial matters, such as the treaty
making power and in questions of
peace or war, through a council of
the empire, the constitution of which
hns not as yet been determined.
That the different colonies and the
mother country should discriminate
in favor of eaoh othor in the matter
of trade is also one of the planks of
the Imperial federationists* as well
as that the colonists, being identified with tho highest affairs of tho
empire, and having a voice in peace
aud in war and in tho making of
political and commercial treaties,
should contribute something towards
the support of the nrmy and the
navy, At the same time, whilo
seeking to draw the colonies to each
other and to the mother country in
the bonds of mutual interest and
welfare, the federationists have to
guard carefully this point, "that no
schemo of federation should interfere with the existing rights of local
parliaments as regards local affairs."
It will readily be conceived that it
will take the best brains in tho empire, as well as considerable timo
and no little patience to evolvo Imperial federation as a complete, perfect and practicable scheme for tho
consolidation and unification of the
British empire; but the accomplishment of so grand an object will warrant and justify the moat devoted
and earnest efforts on that behalf.
The indications point to the fact that
British Columbia will very soon be
taking an active interest in studying
and furthering this great national
question. Victoria has possessed a
branch of tho Imperial federation
league for some time. Our twin
sister city of Vancouver has lately
organized a flourishing and most
enthusiastic branch of the same
society. It now remains for tho
royal city to establish a good lively
branch of the league hore, and tomorrow uight, aftor the lecture, will
ho tlie fittest timo to organize.
The prime minister of Now South
Wales, Sir Henry Farkes, who is
now 75, intends to write a political
history of the colony ho has served
for so long, which loads the Mail to
exclaim: What an interesting volume Sir John Macdonald oould get
ont if he wero to undertake to write
hll reminiioenoei.
One result of the late Seattle lire,
says a San Francisco paper, will be
tho adjudication of a warranty question of no little importance to merchant!*, A firm in Seattle purchased
an alleged fireproof safe which was
warranted to bo liroproof. Unfortunately for all concerned, tho "Salamander" and its contents wero
burned during the conflagration
mentioned, and a suit of damages has
in consequence been brought against
the sellers. The decision in this case
will bo awaited with somo interest.
Safes are by no means the only
artioles sold under nominal guarantees which tho dealer never anticipates ho will bc callod upon to make
good. A littlo moro care in this
respect would be bettor for nil con-
corned.

AN   INTELLIGENT  SHARK.
le Got a Charge from a Han-of- War, and
Now Won't Go Nonr Ono.
■•Several well-spun sea yarna hnvo boen
old by old shellbacks rcRiirdiiiK whut tboy
tad soon at sea," said Chief Officer James
Jrown, of tho Pacifio Mall Company's steam-
r Acapulco, to a San Francisco Chronicle
nan, "but thero is one thin**; certain, and
hat is I have reason to believe that fish
lot only have instinct but also reasoning
lower."
"Uow do you como to theso conclusions J"
vas nskod. *
♦'Well, lot me tell yoa Now, overy soa-
arlngmanwhohas frequented tho port ot
.an Jose, at Guatemala, knows that old San
■one Joo lias beon in and about that port
or tho last thirty years. Joo is without exception one of the largest sharks ovor soon
u tho waters of the oeoan. He iB over
hirty feet In length. This was ascertained
joyoud a doubt by tho officers of tho Aca-
mlco on tho trip boforo the last, when a
par measuring thirty feet hod f alien over
he ship's side, and old Joo camo along, and
,ftor smelling of it floated alongside, moae-
irlng exactly Its length. As to his ngo tlmt
s uot positively known, but tho barrio*
Ies on his book indicate that ho bas boon a
osidontof Ban Jose watorsfora number
if years. Tho barnacles are so old und
rusty as to repel a rifle-ball with tho Bamo
ctpectivo force as a sheet of steel on tho
■Ido of a man-of-war. Captain Pitts, of tho
Vcai)uico,haMtlmo nudagaiu shot at this monitor and without effect, so far as his back
s concerned. The balls glance off tbo old
dIIow's back without doing him any dain-
!.<•■. Vet old Joo carries enough lead ia his
■amiss to sink an ordinary whale, as al-
nost ovory offlcor whoso vessol anchors in
hoso waters takes a whack at him whon
ie runs hlo sides and belly upwards, but
ho bullets don'tseem to do him any harm."
"Woll, about his reasoning capacity)"
"Oh, yes. Somo years ago an English
nan-of-war, whilo lying at anchor, undor*
ook to destroy tho old brute by firing a
■bargo of dynamite into him. Joo was hit
m tho side, and about fifty pounds of
liark's flesh torn away, but tho shot failed
o klil him. But now, mark you, since that
line he will not make his appearance in tbe
tnchorago near whore a man-of-war is
■nt * jd. But just as soon as theso voa-
;'els leave Joe comes to tho surfaco again.
Ie regularly meets the Acapulco about
Ifteen miles outside and pilots her in.
>m-.-anchored ho is satisfied and scorns to
Icli-jhb hi feeding from tho offal. But no
:i:.!,or how well you bait a hook Joo's
■ea ouing qualities tell him to leavo it
douo, and ho invariably follows that lino
if voi. soiling. As to his capacity to stow
.way grub, tbat wob proved on ono occasion
vhuu the vessel was taking aboard some
U'L a. One of ten hogs, weighing probably
ibout eighty pounds, fell overboard, and
ild Joe, who Ib ever on the watoh, saw the
>rizo tnd with one plunge aud a pair of ex*
budeci jaws, tho porker disappeared as
hough he had gone into ahole. On another
■ccaslon we had a lot of mules on board for
he government and ono of the numbor died
md was thrown overboard. Joe made tho
icqtiaintance of tho defunct mule, and
liter tholapsoof six hours tho mule was
iafel.v stowed 'thwart ships iu Joo's loejn**^*
Ceo, Joo Is tho largest shark known to*u-*
,eafftrlng mon. Wo have tried to kill the
nmi'-tcr by nil posaiblo moans, but so far
iavo miserably failed."
A DIET OF TACKS.
iht-y Ileoomo Oxide of Iron nud Aot as n
Hom-Ocliil Tonic.
Carpet tacks aro not generally regarded
is ii healthful, kind of diet, says tho Phila*
lolt-hia Record, but many men havo taken
liein inlo tliolr stomachs in varying doses
villimit suffering any injury from tbem,
mt* ovon deriving benelit from this
iccullar article of food, if tho word of
imminent physicians is to bo belioved. In
iddition to tho many carpet-layers who fill
■heir mouths with tacks while at work, and
tow and then Blip ono down their throat by
iccident, thero are throe colored men on
Lombard street who are able and willing to
itnrtlo a spectator by swallowing a handful
■f sliarp-polutod Iron taoks with tho greatest nonchalance, as if thoy were the most
iutritious morsels. These mon havo
loither leathern intestines or copper-lined
stomaebB, but thoy are able to take caro of
i prodigious quantity of carpet tacks with-
>ut any apparent discomfort or ill-effect.
Medical authorities assort that thoro is
lar loss risk attendant upon swallowing a
nek than is generally supposed, and that
tuch a performance Ib sometimes product-
vo of bonoflclal results, Tbo froak who
iwallows a single tack or a handful of thom

ind It is to this fact that the harmless ucss
if tho swallowing of tacks is ascribed.
furiously, tho tucks Invariably pass through
,lio stomach with thoir heads "bowed down
ii reverence" and placed in the center of
,ho food so that thoy do uot touch tlio walls
if tho intestines. Even when tho point'' of
.he tacks ponotrato tbo lining of tbo stom*
toll tho result Is not so dangerous as would
jo supposed.
Tho reason was explained in a very simple
liannor byDr.T, 8.K. Morton, who snid:
'Thoso taok swallowers generally havo vory
itrou'gstomaohs ond tho amount of gastric
[nice in thom dissolves tho iron and tho ro-
hi It Is a liquillod mass similar in oharactor
fo tho oxide of iron which wo prescribe to
■ii-ii persons as a tonic. Really thero is a
■iTtiiiii amount of benefit attached to the
fallowing of tacks and yet thore is always
ilanger of a serious result in consequence
j»f such an act. I havo nover known of any
borson who had beon compelled to go to a
oospltal front such causes, however.
"But X remember tho caso of a horso that
swallowed a largo-siaed tack. Aftor his
death wo cut open his stomach. Wo found
there a solidified mass of a stony naturo.
When tliishard substance was split open wo
found that tlio tack constituted its nucleus.
A t'iiiiiliu'olfectwould take placo In ft per-
son's stomal'h if the lack should happen to
-■tick for any longth of time in tho walls of
tho Intestines." -*
Dangers of Ico-Wator.
Dr. Hammond protests against tho American habit of gulping down a groat quantity
or lco-water. Ho says that it induces
catarrh of tho stomach, which underlies a
dozon othor troubles, and, very possibly,
caucor of tho stomach. Ice, used lu small
quantities, is a valuable remedy, but any
one had better swallow coals of firo than
lec-wator. It blisters and destroys tho
iiit'iubrano. Dyspepsia ts a suro consequence, and It doos not oven insuro temporary comfort. What, thon, can we dot
Swallow Instead an occasional crumb of
ico. Reasonably cold, but not ice-cold,
lemonade, is a convenient and wholesome
driuk. Bettor yot is tho old-fosliloucd fanner's drink of ono-half milk and ono-hnlf

Modern Warfare,
Admiral Heno&go, tho commander
on the Pacific coast, has conquored a
recalcitrant German vessel, and that
without firing a shot or shedding a
drop of blood. The vessel occupied a
wharf at Esquimalt whioh tho admiral
required for ono of his war vessels,
As Uto Gorman captain refused to vacate when ordered the gallant commander simply throw a tow-line on
board tho ship and towod hor away.
This incident introduces another new
feature in naval warfare. Tho Americana on Behring's Sea aro responsible
for one modification. They havo ro-
duced tho strength uf prize crews to
one man so that the captured ship may
not be overcrowded when beiug taken
to port. This is polite. But Admiral
Heneage's invention is alao humane,
Opposing vessels now, instead of firing shots at onu another and doing all
sorts of unnecessary miachief, can use
tho lasso and pull in opposite* directions for all they are worth. Tho
stronger will of courso haul tho weaker into port, and thus win tho novel
naval battle. Were Admiral He'noaeo
to visit Behring's Sea ho could Bettle

An l-ilt-rcs-ill-i*: Interview wltb Mr. John
Mc.Valr. Xoiilit-ru Fishery tiimr-Ilnii.
I'nrllculurs alum! Flub, Tinnier
anil large <':mic.
Mr. John McNabb, guardian of tho
north coast fisheries arrived homo from
from the north last Saturday. A representative of The Columbia*-* called on
Mr. McNabb at his residence on Agnos
street, and was cheerfully given overy
information about mattor:! in the
north. The troublo with thu Indians
about takiiu' out licenses hits beon
amicably settled. Tho Indians becamo possoBsed of tlio idea that if they
paid tho fishing license they would
have to pay also all the taxes whito
men havo to pay. By dint of pationt
explanation and assurances that they
were mistaken, the wary Si washes
woro ab length induced to complp with
tho law, and tho ring being now brok*
uu no further trouble on this bond
need be feared. There aro three canneries in full blast on tho Slceouit and
Naas rivers, thoy are equipped with
all tho latest additions to thu Bcionco
of canning, but unfortunately tho run
was not heavy this season and owing
to the great scarcity of box lumber,
tho shipments were seriously delayed.
Two saw mills on iho coast, one at
Port Simpson and the othor near tho
mouth of tho Skeena, cannot supply
tho demand fur timber and have to
work night and day to fill thoii orders.
Deep sea fishing is attracting groat
attention at tho present timo nud is
likely to dovolop into an industry uf
much importance
Mr. McNabb has a photograph of
tho Nass cannery taken this aummor.
The picturo shows un establishment
not inferior in sizo to any of tho Frasor institution a, nnd situated in a location very favorablu for such work,
Tho mountains behind are capped with
snow, although the photograph was
takon in mid-summer, and along the
valley at the base of tho hills there is a
forest of big timber.
Communication with the north is of
weekly occurrence now, as tho Alaska
steamers call in regularly on their way
north and returning. The British naval squadron cillcd at Port Simpson
on its way to Behring Sea, much to
tho delight of tho inhabitants of that
quiet town.    .
At Port Essiugtou, ou the Skeena,
about a dozen white families live all
the yonr round, but tho men employed iu tho canneries tako their do-
part uro on the approach of the cold
weather and roturn in the spring.
Whito men nro gradually taking the
place of Indian labor in the fishing and
ennncry work, Mr. McNabb related
somo interesting incidents illustrative
of the Indian character. As is known,
thu government ia very desirous of
abolishing tlie Indian "potlatch" fur
reasons that are evident to evory ono
who has ever seen this Indian Mardi
Qras. But tho natives do not relish
tho idea of this ancient, if not honorable, custom being swept away, und
onu of them, an elderly man of intelligent appearance, gave Mr. McNabb a
"piece of his mind" on tho subject, ho
said, "The whito man is not just, if
you go to Europo, Russia, Franco, Germany, you find tliat thero. ure rich men
and poor mou, the poor men want to
get somo of tho rich men's money and
so thoy do bnd things ofton; this has
troubled tho white man long, how to
mako equal tho monoy. Now, tho In*
dinns solved that ages ago." When
the Indian gets rich ho invites Ins nation to a grand feast and spends all
his money liko a good man." It would
havo bBen cruol to point nut to thii
Siwash philosopher tho flaws in his
theory; but tho above remarks moy
perhaps servo to ahow that tho Northern Indian ia a vastly different boing
to his supposed brother of tho plains
and the oust. Another Siwash gavo a
surprising exhibition of keen and cutting sarcasm ono day. Wlv, McNabb
had ordered this man's boat and net
confiscated in default of payment of
license, and was in tho storo when the
Indian camo in; jerking his thumb ovor
his shoulder in the direction of Mr.
McNabb, the roan remarked to the
storo keeper, "Ho mako government
vory rich, he great man, vory clever."
Tho Etoro keeper, surprised, said,
"What do you moan, who is it?"
"Him," said the Siwash, "ho take my
boat and net, oh, he smart, ho make
government very rich if ho keep on,
but they wero no good anyway, tho
boat was rotten nnd so was tho net."
Ho eventually  took out a license.
Tho timber in thereginn of tho Nass
and Skeena is mainly spruce, and although some of it is iu fine slicks, it
would hardly pay to establish mills so
far north.
Big game i- abundant and cinnamon
and black boar, gray limbor wolves,
caribou and oik are plentiful. Mr.
McNabb thinks Alaska will nover
amount to much; it ia vory greatly
over-rated—far beyond what it is
worth; there is no timbur of any account, and only one good gold mine,
that on Douglas Island. Four hundred mon who went to mine gold on
the Yukon, arc, at the present time,
in a very awkward position, and if not
soon rescued or heard from will perish
miserably from starvation aud the
rigors of tho Alaskan winter.
The Indians of the co:n»t all profess
Christianity, and although bold, evon
haughty, and independent, aru quiet,
orderly people, with an admirable trait
for minding their own business. Thoro
are two Episcopalian teachers on tho
coast, but, strangu to say, no renro-
Hi'iitiitivu of tho Catholic Churoh. Tho
Indians of tlm interior are still wild an
untamable pagans, clinging to tho ancestral fetiches with truo savage ardor.
Selfishness is the principal trait of
the Siwash character. They nro intensely selfish and havo no consideration for anybody but themselves.
Anotlmr photograph showing two
fine spocimonts of Indian manhood,
was shown by Mr. McNabb,. Ono of
tho mon, a Hydra, is a splondid man,
muscular and strong, and with a remarkably intelligent'faco. This ia tho
general style of (he north coast Indiana ; thoy are hardy, strong and
fearless, and only to bo subjugated by
the hated gunboat. Every Indian on
tho coast has a rifle, generally a 16*
shut Winchester or othor improved
pattorn, bosides other arms, and they
arc a class of people bost loft alono.
In speaking of the ruggodnoss of the
Skeena, Mr. McNabb remarked that a
hundred well armed men could defy
nn army in such a place.
Somo of tho Indians cleared over a
thousand dollars eaoh by this yoar'a
fishing, and ouo of them who had been
furnished with a seine and paid so
much por fish by ono of the canners,
sont to Viotoria nnd ordered a whito
marble monument for himsolf out of
his savings. This monument cost
about 8800 and will be placed at tho
head of tho owner, whon ho is dead
and buried. On the wholo, tho fishing
outlook on tho north coast is satisfactory and moro whito people aro going
nortii eaoh succeeding year.

Sir. J. U. Moylan Interviewed uu llie 11.
ft rt-nUt-nllnrj-.   lie Is Sullhflcil
with lhe UNnaacmcnl.
Learning that Mr. J. G. Moylan,
inspector of penitentiaries, was about
to leave fcr the east yesterday aftornoon, a representative of Thb Colum-
dun jumped on tho Pacific express to
interview him on tho fly, as tt were,
concerning tho affairs of tho British
Columbia penitentiary, uf whioh not
n littlo has been said sinco the release
of O'Connor and Johnston from that
institution last wintor. These men issued a pamphlet which it will, boro*
■uemberod reflected very seriously on
tho management of tho penitentiary,
and on whicli Tub Columbian commented, suggesting that a special
investigation should be hold, the remarks of Senator Molnnes in tho senate on tho samu subject being also
quoted ou another occasion. After Mr.
Muylan'a arrival in Westminster two
weeks ago ho addressed lotters to Tuk
Columbian, Senator Mclnnes and
others, asking them lo lay befure him
any specific charges or information
thoy might bo In possession of, and he
would bo ploased to hoar thom and
hold an investigation. Ho also caused
an advertisement to be published to
tho aamo ellect. Not being in possession of specific evidonco against tho
management of tho penitentiary, and
not feeling inclined to tako up the
causo alone, tho management of The
Columbian roplied to that effect, and
tho matter dropped.
Mr. Moylan received our representative very cordially and seemed most
willing to speak ou tho subject introduced, namely, the charges that wore
laid against the oflicers of tho penitentiary by ex*convicts O'Connor and
Johnston, On boing asked his opinion of tho charges laid, Mr. Moylan
satd: "Theso charges wero laid by two
oftho worst men we lmve ovor had iu
tho penitentiary. Even Bishop Sillitoe admitted they wero among the
worst men ho had evor mot. Why,
when I was hore two years ago and investigated tho conduct of these men,
I ordered tho warden, who had refrained, from aoft-heartodneas, to givo
somo.of them the lash. When O'Connor found out he waB unablo to carry
out his schemes while ho attended the
lloman Catholic chapel, ho professed to
bo converted and asked to be placed
ou the church of England list. A few
days afterwards four other Catholics
asked for tho sumo chango. This was
considered strange and suspicious and
their requests were refused, but thoy
were told they might attend lho Protestant services held by the regular
prison chaplain, Rev. Mr. Jamieson.
This was not what they wanted and
they domurred. It was afterwards
discovered that a cunning plot had
been arranged, and whioh might havo
resulted successfully but for tho wisdom of tho warden in not allowing
their demands. Tho plan was this:
Tho churoh of England services aro
hold in the warden's room, the windows of which are not barred. Somo
14 convicts attond theso services, and
it would not have been a difficult matter for them to make a sudden bolt,
get out througn the windows and possibly take possession of tho armory bo-
low, then overcome tho guards and
disperse, taking their chances of getting ovor the fence beforo an alarm was
givon. The matter of allowing theso
men to change to the ohurch of England was referred to me, and by mo to
the minister of justice, who deoided
not to allow tho chango. These men
wero also very bitter against Father
Horris, and why? Becauso ho tried to
mako them hotter men and because ho
reported their misconduct and irregularities in chapel."
On boing asked what ho thought of
tho suggestion uf Senator Molnnes
that an investigation of tho chargos
should bo made, Mr. Moylan answered: "I could find no grounds on
whioh to advise n speoial commission
to search the question. Without
some definite grounds to work on, tho
government would not take suoh a
stop. But in order to satisfy myself
on tho charges that have beon laid,
and to discover if possible any foundation there might have been fur them,
I hold an investigation during my present visit, which hns satisfied mu that
tho charges laid against thu govorning
oflicers wero without foundation, 1
caused ovory officer cf tho penitentiary
to appear before mo and on oath' examined them separately on all tho
points raised, endeavoring tu ascertain from them if they wero cognisant
of nny irregularities, ill-troatnient,
etc, practiced by the warden or deputy warden towards tho convicts.
My utmost endeavors failed to elicit
one word derogatory to these gentlemen and in sending my report to tho
minister of justice, nnd explained tho
steps I had taken, I informed him if
anything was wrong in connection with
tho management of tho penitentiary
tho ovil was well cloaked, and overy
officer of the institution must bo iu
league to keep it hidden."
Tho train was nearing the junction
by this time and our represent-tive
had just time to ask another question.
"What is tha tenor of your report
on tho British Columbia penitentiary
this timo?" Mr. Moylan replied: "My
report to the department this timo is
bolter than it ovor waa beforo, and I
go back better pleased and moro satis-
tied with tho management of tho institution than on any former occasion."
Thoro was juat timo for a hand
shako and Mr. Moylan changed cars
and a fow minutes later wus speeding
along towards Regina, whero ho makes
his noxt stop,
